Since I updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 5, Cover Flow in Music app is terribly slow... Lag to see the covers. I've heard over there that iOS 5 doesn't reduce the size of the covers to a standard, so the iPhone has to resize them everytime you watch them.
And.. When device locked, playing music and you double tap to change the song, the cover also changes with a "long" lag..
Anyone having these problems?
I've been having the same sluggish response with cover flow on my iPhone 4 after updating to iOS 5. I don't understand when everything else seems to be running more smoothly than on iOS 4.3.5 that cover flow is so choppy which is a shame since I have always liked this feature. I seriously hope Apple address this issue in the next update to iOS 5.
Well, apparently the resizing thing is true.. If your cover is 1000x1000, the iPhone will resize to a lower resolution when it has to show the cover. Imagine doing this for loads of covers in "Cover Flow", the A4 is not that powerful.
Two possibilities, Apple does it on purpose so we buy the "extremely fast" iPhone 4S or it's a bug. Pretty sure about the second one. Everything else runs great with iOS 5. But Music app with Cover Flow and changing songs when locked really *****. Such a pity. Hope they fix this soon.
I got the same ios5 issues.
The Cover Flow is now very slow when it doesn't freeze or simply crash.
I cannot use the cover flow anymore and this a probleme when you iP4-32 is full of techno mixes with a different artist for each track.
Hope this will be fixed very soon. The music player is by far the feature i use the most.
I've been having the same issue. I called customer service already but they have no clue about this and they always keep telling the same crap: "It is a new version of the OS so we'll fix some issues. Thanks for contacting..."
Always the same thing.
Oh, and yes the covers dont get automatically resized when you enter CoverFlow. I noticed right away cuz the covers were kind of pixelated ( i mean over-pixelated = too much pixels). That didn't happen before.
